LONDON (Reuters) - British police said they were appalled by the way George Floyd lost his life and by the violence which followed in U.S. cities but called on potential protesters in the United Kingdom to work with police as coronavirus restrictions remain in place.

"We stand alongside all those across the globe who are appalled and horrified by the way George Floyd lost his life," police chiefs from across the United Kingdom said in a joint statement. "Justice and accountability should follow."
